2009: Nest 18

Nest #18 Loggerhead found by Bobby 7/01/09 WaterSound left in place and marked by Bobby and Joe.


This nest was 68 feet from the water but got water over it in  T. S. Claudette and when the water goes over our nests it also come up through the bottom and stays.  This kills the hatchlings in the bottom part of the nest.  This is why the results of this nest are not as good as some of the others.

39 escaped from the nest
1 was alive in nest and released
7 eggs had no obvious
87 eggs had dead embryos stopped when the water came up.
